Tips For Underarm Shaving

Learn how to trim and shave armpit hair like a pro, and add it to your shaving ritual.

Shaving your underarms

Armed with the right tools, like the  Gillette Trimmer and Braun products, shaving your underarms is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get great results, every time:

Select your styler comb length

Step 1

Select a fixed comb length. The right comb length on your body hair trimmer can help you tame full, natural growth that hasn’t been touched by a razor for a while – or ever. The Braun 8-in-1 Styling Kit comes with four comb attachments for you to choose from.

Step 1

Trim. Trim your underarm hair. Trimming the hair before shaving can help prevent clogged blades.

Shower

Step 3

Shower. The water will help soften your underarm hair (which can be wiry) and make it easier for the razor to glide over your skin. The Gillette Trimmer is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.

Apply shaving gel

Step 4

Lather Up with a shave gel. A good lather helps to hydrate hairs, enhance razor glide, and protect your skin while you shave your underarms.

Check your blades

Step 5

Check For Dull Blades. Blade feeling dull or lubrication strips looking faded? It may be time for you to swap your blade attachment before you begin.

Shave with light, gentle strokes

Step 6

Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes. Shave with light, gentle strokes, rinsing often, and with the skin pulled taut. Gillette SkinGuard is a good choice for shaving sensitive skin such as the underarms because of its unique SkinGuard positioned between the blades. It works to minimize tug and pull and cut hair at skin level, designed to stop irritation.

Rinse your blades

Rinse Your Blades Often. Run the blades gently under the tap every few strokes, both the back and front sides of the blades, and then gently shake excess water off. Do not tap your razor against the sink or wipe against a towel; these habits can reduce the life of the razor by affecting the intricate design of the blade components. Rinsing the blades under running water helps to remove built-up shaving gel, hair, and dead skin.

Shave in multiple directions

Shave in multiple directions. Underarm hair grows in all different directions, so choose a razor that’s designed to shave those tricky spots.

Reapply shaving gel as needed

Step 9

Re-apply a shave gel as Needed. You may find that you need to shave over the same spot in different directions to get a smooth shave. In order to help prevent shaving rash on your underarm skin, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.

Rinse off, towel dry and moisturise

Re-apply Rinse, Dry and Moisturise. Moisturising after shaving your underarms is critical – it helps soothe the skin.
